White Pine Jewelry Solutions Announces First Finished Jewelry Sales Event

The recently formed White Pine Jewelry Solutions, a division of White Pine Trading, will hold its first finished jewelry and watch sales event for the trade at its Fifth Avenue offices Nov. 11–13. The sale will offer finished jewelry packaged in lots, ranging from 25 to 200 pieces with a value totaling approximately $10 million.

Among the offerings are diamond and colored stone jewelry, antique and estate pieces, watches, and more. The sale will also offer “buy now” pieces, a departure from traditional jewelry auctions ensuring competitive bidding by setting buyers’ and sellers’ expectations around a target price created by White Pine’s experts.

“This sale will give bidders the opportunity to secure competitively valued goods that are not actively promoted in the market at prices that allow for great margins on resale,” said director of jewelry Michael Lebowitz in a press release. “Our model saves time and money for dealers and retailers looking to buy a sufficient amount of product at one event. We’re looking forward to this inaugural event and to delivering great value to our customers.”

The event runs Nov. 11–13. For more information, visit whitepinediamonds.com.
